Go with the latest gen of tech (600 or 7000 series), or better yet, wait a few months for the generation after THAT to be released.

So you may be able to squeeze extra performance out of that unit, if needed. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Maybe something like a 7870 or a 660 ti and upwards willl start to see noticeable bottlneck Can't find your answer ? Ask !
